By now I’m guessing Y’all have heard that disgraced banker Gerhard Gribkowsky has been sentenced to eight and one-half years of prison in
for breach of trust, tax evasion and bribery albeit having already served 18-months behind bars and most likely will serve a lesser sentence for good behaviour... Germany
Yet within 24-hours of Gribkowsky’s verdict being announced, wallah! Shuhzamm, bingo, flash-bang... Uncle Bernaughty has majikally managed to convince the
‘Rags to run stories of an impending London Grand Prix... HEY YOU! Don’t look over ‘Dar, watch duh Birdie; Err, listen to Bernie... London
As interestingly, Bernie Ecclestone who admitted in court to paying Herr Gribkowsky a $44m Euro BRIBE because he was being “Shaken-down” over his family’s Bambino Trust and the inherent British Tax implications... Has been deemed an accomplice by the German prosecutors, and NOT a victim...
Thus it seems like the obvious question is why did Mr. E really pay Herr Gribkowsky 44-million Euros in order to get CVC Capital to pay some $840-million for the Bayern LB F1 shares... Which now CVC and Formula 1 are reportedly worth umpteen-times more.
As perhaps Gerhard was really paid off to have CVC Capital buy the German bank’s shares at an inflated price along with ensuring that Ecclestone stayed in charge? As some how Uncle Bernaughty doesn’t seem like the type to be shaken down, as after all just check out those Hublot wrist watch ads he made just days after being mugged...
